Nick Kyrgios' retirement promise brutally shut down as ex-American star aims pointed dig

“There’s no chance. I’m playing till 33? Insane! I’m not playing till 33. I promise you when I’m gone, you’ll never see me again.”

Former World No. 5 Jimmy Arias believes that Kyrgios’ comments are unwarranted as he rarely plays a full season. “I don’t know what he’s talking about when he says this schedule is out of control,” Arias said via the Tennis Channel. “He’s played one match this year.He seems to take every other year off, so he should be able to play for another 25 years. 

“It’s just interesting to listen to him talk, let’s see what happens when he’s 33. But as we’re talking right now, I don’t know [if] he’s gonna play five more matches [this year]. He’s played once so far this year. I’m not sure [his] wrist, knee, his tattoo is hurting him too much [from playing] Pokemon maybe. I don’t know.”
